    I was not able to do step 1, ctrl-alt-del to get the task manager, because it, too, brings up the annoying little window to either ínstall heuristic module'or çontinue unprotected'. When you click the former, it asks you to purchase the software (probably there is no software) and if you click the latter all it does is closes the window. Cannot get task manager to come up. Windows Vista.

    No 'rec cross' entry is found in the registry. Probably they are using a different name in the registry.
